The Shack is back on Twitter promoting its crypto and NFTs in an NFSW kind of way, and reactions are mixed.

For a lot of users finding a Raspberry Pi is almost impossible. Even if you do find one they're oddly expensive for the "credit card-sized computer" that had a first version released at $35. This has mostly been thanks to the significant chip shortages that have been plaguing almost all aspects of the computing... Read more...
After all the rumors about insane power draw (and thus insane heat output) for the flagship model of the upcoming family of GeForce GPUs, most folks have been expecting some kind of insane, exotic cooling system for the cards. That may yet come to pass for the final release models, but the pictures above and below... Read more...
Truth be told, it's harder than it looks to be witty on Twitter. Not everyone shares the same sense of humor, and you have to be careful not to cross any lines and say something stupid.

The AM4 platform's exceptional longevity has earned it immense and continuous praise from the enthusiast community, but now its reign is over and it's time to move on to Socket AM5, right?

Every so often, market research firms make gloomy forecasts that put even the most cynical weatherpersons to shame. This really came to a head when tablets started to make a run at the market—it was the end of the PC as we knew it! The PC survived (especially PC gaming), of course, and it will make it through 2022... Read more...
It's been almost a couple of years since I spent some hands-on time with Samsung's XCover Pro, a rugged Android handset without the usual bulk that you might expect from such a device. There was a lot to like about that phone, and many of those highlights appear to have found their way to Samsung's brand-spanking new... Read more...
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is expected to deliver more detailed images from deeper into space than ever before.

AMD's latest round of high-end desktop (HEDT) processors based on its Zen 3 architecture were never going to be cheap, but exactly how much will they cost?

We're fans of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D around here. Sure, it's pricey for what it is; that much is inarguable. Still, the fact that you can slap a brand-new processor into a two- or three-year-old motherboard and immediately get chart-topping gaming performance is extremely cool. Your author here threw one into his ASRock... Read more...
Samsung is making a spirited run at the gaming TV market, which if we're being real, many people associate with LG and its fancy OLED models. That's because LG was one of the first to embrace the HDMI 2.1 standard (and not fake HDMI 2.1) with features that current generation game consoles can tap into. But others have... Read more...
You're tired of hearing it, we're tired of saying it; yes, Intel's Arc graphics are real and out there. They haven't hit store shelves in the US yet, but they're on the way—probably as we write this.
